In April Mr O and I ventured to Italy for our ‘summer holiday’. Seeing as the summer is my busiest time for weddings, the Easter April break seemed to be the best time to get away. The week we chose also coincided with the Milan Marathon – lucky eh? Depending on how you look at it… No, I did not run the Milan Marathon, but Mr O did! And amazingly, too (3h30!). As the marathon fell on the Sunday, we used the days before to explore Verona and Venice, eating well, drinking well (I did, anyway) and walking well.

It may have rained. A lot. But it was wonderful :)

I wasn’t joking about that rain…

Look! Blue sky!! Woo hoo!

And then we explored Milan…

Knees a-wobblin’!

And then he ran a marathon :)

Followed by a well-earned beer!


While sorting through the photos and writing about our wee break, I’ve had nothing but this song going round my head. So I had to share it. Again! Apologies for those on Facebook who have seen me share this twice in the past few months… :)
